Be Fierce!

The eyes don’t lie.

“You don’t have to have a cat eye to be fierce”— Christina Koop, CEO of Runwayz Media. What do your eyes reveal about you? Do your eyes exude radiant life? Or are your eyes lifeless, dull and uninteresting, deterring people away from you? Doll, it’s time to wake up!

Adorn your eyes with eye shadows that allure people to you with mystery, sparkle and dimension. Your essence is the message being sent out to others and how they relate to you. Walk your talk. Be authentic. Be you.

If your eyes are closed set. Bring them out by not enclosing the entire eye with lined eyes. Instead detail your liner half way to open your eyes up.

Let your eyes non-abrasively pierce into the eyes of another. Set your iPhone down and really look into the eyes of those you encounter. Be fierce with truth and love unyielding.

Enhance the color of your eyes:

  • For brown eyes, use plums, purples, earth tones, greens, pinks, champagnes, smokey blues, dark grays, coppers and golds.
  • For blue eyes, use coppers/bronze, champagne, warm tones, earth tones and silver grays.
  • For hazel eyes, use golds, browns, bronzes and dark greens
  • And for green eyes, use purple, shimmering taupe, silver, warm browns, and red undertones to make the eyes pop. Stay away from ashy tones.

Adorn your eyes with a color pallet that matches your style and personality. If you’re not sure of what colors to blend together purchase a compact of trio colors that are already put together and our complementary side by side. Mac, Lorac and many other cosmetic companies offer seasonal color compacts for you.

I really loved this Photoshoot (above photos) out in the desert. The wind whipped Amy’s hair around.

But her makeup didn’t budge in the gusty winds. Her eyes and poses remained laser focused and her beauty beamed into the camera. During the shoot, there was so much excitement—cars passing by on the highway, honking, and people straining their necks to get a glimpse.

Fierce radiant eyes send out an alluring message of engagement and unshakeable confidence.


Embrace Life,
